Based on James Ellroy’s novel of the same title, L.A. Confidential is about the intersection of police corruption and Hollywood celebrity, set in 1953. We follow three LAPD officers whose investigations into various cases begin to reveal indications of corruption around them.

With taut pacing, intricate plotlines, and a brilliant screenplay, the author himself has praised the film as a “great ensemble piece” and a “brilliantly compatible visual form of the novel”.

Nominated for nine Academy Awards, the film won two, losing the remaining categories to Titanic. It was also ranked by Time magazine as the best film of 1997. A critically acclaimed film, L.A. Confidential has a rare 99% approval rating on Rotten Tomatoes, with reviews praising that it “gets just about everything right”.
